Dear Greg and Lila and all concerned by the future of LGM,

Thank you both for your constructive comments!
In the organisers-meeting there has been some steps made towards clarifying
the decision making process, and updating the requirements list. A decision
on the next venue should be reached by 15 May. We also established a
'global' organising team with different tasks including infrastructure, a
content team and a sponsor team. A report of the meeting can be found here:

If you are interested in following the discussion, or want to contribute to
organising LGM, please sign up to the LGM-organisers list; we would like to
continue the discussion there: http://lists.freedesktop.org/**

The CREATE list is for anything Libre Graphics related; your ideas,
reports, specific projects etc. Keep them coming!
